Battery life is never the strength of large notebooks, even more so when you combine the large screen with a powerful processor and dedicated graphics card. The Acer 8940G stayed on for 3 hours and 10 minutes in our battery test with the screen brightness set to 70%, the power profile set to "balanced," and the wireless active. Power consumption varied between 18 and 24 watts during the test.
The Acer Aspire 8940 has nothing new in its design on the outside and has very common look and feel like the acer aspire one laptops. Though it is a big sized 18 inch notebook, it feels like a smaller 15 inch notebook because of its no frill design. But with big size comes big responsibility of making it sturdy enough so that it does not have too much flex under pressure. The notebook serves well under the responsibility and we don’t have any serious complain against its build quality but making the structure takes toll on its weight factor. The weight of over 9 pounds makes it impossible to carry outdoors and you won’t like it moving to and fro either.
The Acer Aspire 8940G has a SDHC Card Slot in the front, AC Power, LAN, VGA, Display Port, HDMI, eSATA/USB Combo, an USB, FireWire, Audio Jacks and Express Card Slot 54 on the right. The Blu Ray Drive, two more USB and a Kensington Lock is on the right side. There are every port that you can expect from a laptop and the space on its sides are very well utilized for them.
The system comes with a Intel Core i7 720 QM processor running at 1.6 GHz. It has 1333 MHz FSB and 6MB cache memory. Two 2GB DDR3 memory modules add the the nifty speed and performance of the machine. The dedicated Nvidia GeForce GTS 250M graphics with 1GB dedicated GDDR3 memory can run all the latest 3D games but don’t expect frame rates like those in gaming desktop computers and you’ll do fine. Overall, the machine is a powerful beast to meet all your needs under one roof.
Not Portable...This is made for people who love Big Laptop...or would i Say Desktop replacement!!! If you are not worried about the size and weight then this is for you!!
The 18.4 inch WUXGA FHD LCD display showing 1920×1080 pixels is the main asset of this notebook. The screen is an all glass style display with a protective layer covering the display. The color reproduction of the display is very good and contrasts are also superb. The brightness levels are also very good to be used in a brightly lit room although there is a problem of glare in bright lighting. Both vertical and horizontal viewing angles are also good enough.
The Acer Aspire 8940G is a well built and good looking multimedia notebook that can also game. The sound system is great if you can get past the weaker volume levels. The spacious 18.4" display is great for sharing a movie in a small room; something that might be difficult with a 15" or 17" notebook. System performance is very good with the Intel Core i7 processor and NVIDIA GTS 250M graphics ... although slightly less than true gaming notebooks. The biggest strength of the 8940G though is its ¤1,349 price, which is lower than any other Core i7 system currently on the market.
